My fiancee & I had started "The Love Dare" even before we saw the movie.

When we had finally saw it, it was an amazing experience.

Thank you Kirk.

God Bless

My church just showed this movie at a marrage seminar, although we have been going for a few weeks, this movie really hit the nail on the head. For me, it was truely watching our marrage on the screen. As most people have said, I'm not sure how much he got out of it. He claims to be a believer, but I'm not quite sure. Please pray the Good Lord will change both our hearts, that our marrage will be pleasing to the Lord and a good example to our children!! I'm praying for all you out there. Thanks for sharing your stories and praise God for this movie. Hopefully it will start some healing.

My husband and I have been married for 15 years. Over the past few years we have often said to each other that we are tired of our lives together. We watched the movie together at church with other couples and it was a very moving movie for me. I am not sure of his feeling of the movie. I go to church with our children on a regular basis. I am an active member and he doesn't go with us. My husband would rather spend his free time fishing than to spend it with us at church or at home. I recently have put God first in my life. I have been a Christian for a long time but never really decided to surrender it all to him. I too have put the world before my faith and now want to put my faith and marriage first. Divorce has been spoken in heated argumentsí on numerous occasions but I really do not want that. I do love my husband and want to do what ever it takes to save our marriage. Please pray that I will have the courage and strength to take each day at a time and to continue to put God first in my life.

My husband and I have been separated for over a year. I thought leaving would bring him to his senses. I tried everything to get his attention. After seeing the movie, I realized that when we love our spouse we love them even through their faults. I like many others who have seen the movie ran out in search of the book. I need guidance. I know without an inkling of a doubt that I love my husband. I gave him a copy of the movie to watch. I purchased a copy of the book for him too, but I did not give it to him. I figure it is my responsibility to exercise unconditional love. It is not easy, especially in the beginning when you're not getting anything in return.

I ask for the LoveDare community to keep us in your prayers. I don't know how to do this. I wish I would have found this movie a year ago. I have to keep my faith in God. I pray for strength especially now that I am so weak.

I will hold all of you in my prayers. This is the start to ending the war against marriage.

God Speed!

My husband brought this movie home Thursday nite. We watched the movie not once but twice together. I am the more openly emotional one in the marriage. I cried like a little baby but my husband truly enjoyed the movie as well. The second go around we would stop/pause the movie at intregal parts and discuss what is going on and if this is happening to us.

We truly embraced the movie and the message that is being told throughout the movie. Thanks to the writers, actors, producers, and GOD for giving us a great movie to watch and get inspiration from.

I've been with my boyfriend for almost two years now. Some days it just felt like he was more into being a firefighter or being online than he was with me. My brother had rented the movie, and we decided to watch it also. I wasn't really expecting my boyfriend to actually be into the movie, (you know how some guys can be with a mushy movie). He sat there and watched the whole movie. not leaving or falling asleep. Whenever the actor would start to read a passage from the book, my boyfriend would look over at me. At the end of the movie, he told me that he now relizes how he has not really been that loving to me as he thought he has been. Both of us really want to try and make this work, and I'll tell you, I'm the last person to get help from anyone, but this book definately does solve problems for couples.

I watched this movie with a girlfriend of mine a few weeks ago and it had a profound effect on me.

I have been separted from my husband of 13 years for two years now. We had tried a couple times during those 2 years to make it work, but it seems like one time he was trying and I wasn't or vise vera.

Since watching the movie I've called my husband and asked if he would meet me for a coffee. He did and I told him I still loved him and wanted to save our marriage. He told me he always has loved me and we've been seeing each other since.

My husband and I rented the movie again to watch together. I just bought the The Love Dare but we haven't started it yet. We are still living apart but plan on getting a place together in the near future.

This time both of us are willing to work to save our marriage, and I know we will succeed this time.

I am so thankful my girlfriend rented this movie even though she thought it would be like ladder 49. God does work in mysterious ways.

I have been married for 10 years. A friend invited me to see the movie at her church. I am glad she did. I am here, looking to change my world. It is a great film and it makes you want to do better...

I saw fireproof 2 weekends ago because one of my husband's coworkers found out that my husband and I had been having problems and he thought it would be a good idea for us to see it. We had been having problems of just fighting for dumb reasons and forgetting why we had gotten married to each other when we were so in love almost 3 years ago. That same morning we had gone to Marriage counseling for the first time ever and then the movie was just perfect. I never imagined it to be so beautiful and to have such a strong message for all of us out there. I had to have my parents watch it because my parents have been married for 24 years and it's been difficult too. Both my husband and my father cried and of course my mother and I cried even more. I totally recommend this movie and my marriage has been great for the past two weeks because we have been trying to be the way we were before at the beginning something I didn't think could happen again and we don't even think going back to marriage counseling is necessary all we need is God.

My Husband and I have been married for almost 10 years and have been growing apart for the last year and I want it to stop. My parents bought the movie for us to watch and we did but I do not think it met as much to him as it did to me. He did say it was a good movie but I know I got more out of it then he did. I want to do the Love Dare and get our marriage back. I love him very much and I know somewhere inside him he still loves me. Just pray for us.

My husband and I decided to finally sit down and watch this movie last night having bought it a month ago. I was not expecting anything from him, however I was very interested in the movie. To my surprise, he sat thru the whole movie and as it got to parts I was crying at, he was, too. At the end he asked me if I would find him a Love Dare book and I said yes. He said he never really realized just how bad he treated me or took me for granted. This movie has saved my marriage and makes me want to work on it more than ever before.

I rented the movie last night not knowing what it was really about. I watched it with my husband who normally watches action movies and to my surprise we were both touched by this movie. It is so powerfull!!! So many times we have been angry at eachother and we are both too proud to stop it and it gets bigger and bigger. Watching that on screen made us feel a bit silly of how we sometimes act. We decided today that even though we didn't think there was anything wrong with our marriage there are lots of things wrong and we need to fix it now before its too late. I am ordering the book and taking the 40 day challange. Every one of us should be proud to be willing to work at our relationships and not take the easy way out and walk away!! Kudos for all of us!!!

My husband and I are seperated and have been for 4 months now. I saw Fireproof and bought a copy for my husband. He actually accepted and said he would watch. As for me, it was like watching my life on screen (but a cop instead of a fireman). Not since The Passion, have I promoted a movie so much. God really speaks and I intend to listen. Just pray for me and my husband.

I placed the movie in the dvd and expected my husband to get up and go watch another tv or yet fall asleep. He watched the entire movie never getting up or closing his eyes. I prayed that it would convict him and whether it did or not he watched.

I rented the movie, not knowing what really to expect. But as me and the man im with watched, the more and more it seemed to be us on TV, the movie was everything our relationship has came too. The more we watched the more we saw what we were doing to each other and our love. But, with the ending of the movie, it made us want to try harder in saving our relationship together that has been a spiral downward. We're both tired of all the hate that we show each other, and now, seeing the movie, want nothing but, to make everything better and stronger in our realtionship.

My husband and I have been seperated for a month due to an affairthat happened almost 2 years ago. We decided to watch the movie last Thursday. Our exact situation with the doctor and all. Through this time of seperation and watching the movie, we have dedicated the next 40 days to relearning each other and allowing God to bind us together.

I watched the movie last night. A friend had suggested it to me weeks ago and it finally happened. Earlier in that day, I went over to the home of my ex-fiance's parents to gather all of my things that she took when she moved out or that I was storing there. I told everyone that I just wanted to be done. Her mother had very encouraging words for me.
While watching the movie and hearing Caleb and his wife say word for word things that I've said or had said to me, I was truly moved. I went thru almost an entire box of tissues. My ex is out of town and I talked to her mother. I'm taking a copy of the movie over to their house and I hope that she will watch it. Please pray for me as I start my journey. I love her with all of my heart and I'm not going to give up. God had me watch this movie on this day. I thought everything was finally over for a reason and now, I'm forever changed. I pray that it's not too late and I will do everything I can to truly learn how to LOVE the person that I do love.

I sat watching the movie with my husband of almost 23 years and my 14 year old daughter who was also in tears as we saw Caleb & Catherine's story unfold. My marriage has had a few tiny hiccups but nothing like some of the stories I have heard, nor on the scale in the movie.
I want to take the Love Dare if only to make sure that I never take my husband for granted... and to make sure he knows that I love him for who he is and because I want to build on the strengths that are already there in our marriage. The old saying "If it ain't broke, why fix it" is definitely not true in this case. Unconditional love is so liberating... for ourselves and for others. It dawned on me, I can also use the Love Dare with my children as well. I know I will have to modify some of the days but I made a promise to God today and I have drawn a line in the sand. I am going to aim for a peaceful loving home environment for everyone who lives in and who visits our house. I feel blessed that I have children who are serving in the house of God and who have had the love of both myself and my husband, but I know how I have damaged their spirits at times with harsh words. God has been gracious to forgive me but I know that with that forgiveness I want to move on and to reach out to them and others with the God kind of love. I can remember reading a greeting card saying that said "Love means never having to say you're sorry". I thought that was so deep at the time, but now I know that it should have read "Love means never forgetting to say you're sorry."

God bless

My husband and I watched this movie. Emotions were high. After watching this I instantly went and ordered two copies of the book from this website. One for me and one for my husband. We will start this 40 day love dare and hope for the best. Everyone's marriage can improve. Thank You so much.

This movie is a blessing from God. My husband and I watched the movie together and I'm excited for Love Dare.
